Ernest, in his review below, needs to realize that this is period fiction. Both the British and the Egyptian characters are an accurate representation of turn-of-the-century attitudes, and the book HAS to be consumned as such.
Ms. Peters as always has delivered a work worthy of everything we've come to love about the Emerson's, and Ms. Rosenblatt gives the characters life in this audio reading.
I NEVER have so much fun as following the Emerson's in both their adventures in Egypt, and their quirky family life!
Living in an age where true discovery has expanded into the macro and micro age of science, it is refreshing, and indeed exciting to hear about an age where physical exploration with its associated dangers expanded the realm of human knowledge by leaps and bounds, shattering the age-old misconceptions of the nature of man and the enviornment in which he dwells.
This recording of The Great Age of Discovery is very much an adventure story of the highest magnitude, with a wonderful narration by Charlton Griffin.
